A delightful place for the kids as well as adults, Jungle Island is a great way to spend a day outdoors. Located just minutes away from downtown Miami, the park is full of birds and animals. It was started by Franz and Louise Scherr, who wanted a place for their birds to fly free. Today the park is also home to many animals such as penguins, orangutans, crocodiles and even tigers. There's also the Treetop Ballroom where nature fans can have their events, planned to the last detail by their in-house staff.
After reading these reviews I realized a lot of problems with the attractions seems like the price doesn't fit what you get out of it. Personally my family had a killer time here hanging out with the beautiful birds, seeing the shows, and it was something I had never personally done. I recommend getting a Go Miami Card so that you can do other attractions for less money. It's also nice because they just swipe your card and you go in, super simple.
Do not miss the trained bird performer!
Major dislike of Parrot Jungle is the pricey admission. Further, there was just not that much to see/do for a $24.95 admission price. They jab you again on the way out for parking ($6.00). Much more to see and do at the Metrozoo for adults and kids.
The only thing we did not enjoy was the heat and lack of ventilation. We were there last summer'05 and plan on going back this month. My daughter was just 10months old then so she was a little irritable by the heat. Aside from that the shows the staff and the animals put on was fantastic. Highly recommended.
Loved the place!! I was there the day it re-opened after being closed due to the hurricanes that hit the area.(12/10) Despite that, you could tell it was a beautiful place. The animals were well taken care of and just the atmosphere of the place was really nice. Then again, I was also there to get married so I think that might have had something to do with it. The staff was VERY HELPFUL and since my wedding was held at night, I got to see another side of the place. It is an EXCELLENT PLACE TO HOLD A SPECIAL EVENT. Saved a ton of money for service that I only thought could be had at a 5 star facility or a country club. My girl Rebecca, who is in charge of running such events as my wedding, made sure all things went smoothly. Great place to visit. I will be back.
Parrot Jungle Island may be a little expensive, but it's so fun, you don't wanna leave. You can feed live parrots on perches, NOT behind cages, and go into a llama/goat farm for free. See parrots talk, hold baby monkeys, it's my best day in Miami.
